2 U.S. personnel dead in Bahrain shooting
by UPI

MANAMA, Bahrain -- Two female U.S. Navy sailors were killed and a third person critically injured Monday at a base in Bahrain, in an attack the Navy said wasn't terror-related.

A Navy statement said the incident occurred at 5 a.m. and sources told the BBC stemmed from a "domestic situation" in the barracks.

The injured sailor was reportedly male, CNN said.

There was no intrusion of the base, which went into lockdown in Manama for an hour after the shootings, the report said.

Officials refused to release other details.

Some 3,000 U.S. personnel from the navy's 5th Fleet are in Bahrain, which the United States considers a significant non-NATO ally.
